Impact: Feature Issue on Stories of Advocacy, Stories of Change from People with Disabilities, Their Families, and Allies (1988-2013)

Description

A newsletter issue featuring then-and-now personal stories from individuals with disabilities, their families, and allies that provide a snapshot of how the disability rights movement has touched individual lives over the past 25 years. This 25th anniversary issue of Impact brings together personal stories published in its pages between 1988-2010, and pairs them with new stories from those same individuals and families that bring readers up-to-date on their lives today. Through these stories, plus an interview with the Institute's founding director Bob Bruininks, this Impact recognizes the tenacity, courage, and vision of those working to bring about progress toward full citizenship and community inclusion for people with disabilities in the U.S.
